    Quaint Resort Studio in the Forest

    Singapore

    Description

    <span>Smack in the middle a tropical jungle is this quaint little 3-levels, 75 year old colonial apartment building. Despite the wild setting, inhabited with hornbills, king fishers, parrots and squirrels in the day turning to the nocturnal sounds of wildlife and owls at night — there is hardly a mosquito to ruin your stay!</span><br />
    <p><span>The design of this beautiful colonial building is an open concept, and since it is situated on one of the highest plateaus with no obstructions around the area, it enjoys strong cooling breezes all year round. Every guest who has graced this dwelling has told me that this apartment is a breath of cool air in this tropical island.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>After my description above, one might think that I live in seclusion. In fact far from it. According to the map, we are more central then the entire down town area of Singapore. We are literally 10-20 minutes away from anywhere by cab &ndash; the main shopping district of Orchard Road, the historic Chinatown and Clarke and Boat Quays or the restaurant oasis of Club Street. The Central Express Way aka CTE is at our next junction. You can&rsquo;t get anymore convenient than that.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>Unlike my other room. This room is completely private studio with your own bathroom and private access to your room … I won't even know if you come or go. But you want to have anything, all you need to do is knock on my door and i'll attend to you. But you if you are bored in your own studio, just pop by and enjoy my living space, guests are more then welcome to enjoy a glass of wine at my balcony.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>As a guest, you will be very much welcomed in my home. So let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. I used to be an entertainer, starting out as a model in San Francisco when I was sixteen, followed by being a MTV and Channel V VJ before I got myself a talk show spot in Taipei, Taiwan. I have now traded glitz and glamor for a Ph.D. I&rsquo;m quite open on (website hidden); please do check it out if you want to know more about who Rick Tan, (website hidden) really is. I do believe that wisdom is knowledge through one&rsquo;s experience, so let&rsquo;s trade stories about our life experience.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>I also feel that everything is possible — all you need to do is ask. I&rsquo;ll make your stay in Singapore an amazing experience that you will brag about it to your friends for years to come. I have been told time and again that I&rsquo;m a great ambassador for Singapore, so rest assured you will go back with plenty of knowledge, insights and wonderful moments.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>You might want to do the touristy thing, but if you are looking forward to a true local Singapore experience, then I&rsquo;ll show you around whenever I want to catch a breather from my Ph.D. research, I&rsquo;ll let you know so that you can plan in advance. I look forward to seeing you in Singapore. Rick.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>If you like airport pickup please let me know in advance, it's will only cost your SGD$45 for each trip.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>Laundry is SGD$20 Per load inclusive of ironing.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>To make sure that my guest are comfortable, this is strictly for not more then 2 guest for each booking.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>And last but not least, Please be aware that pre-approve does mean that it's confirmed. It's all first come first serve. Please do not wait till the last moment because others might have booked it already and I won't be able to do anything about it.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>I'm sorry I have to put this disclaimer down for there were many incidences where people ask me why they can't book it after they have been pre-approve and that's the reason why.</span></p>
    <br />
    <p><span>Thanks for checking my dwelling out.</span></p>

      What a treat! I was coming to Singapore on a tight budget and was looking for alternative that would not mean sharing a dorm room with 5 other people! Rick's guest room was amazing value! Not only did I have a beautiful, fully equipped room and my own ensuite bathroom, but he welcomed me into his home like a friend. To top it all was the wonderful sleep I got - 5 star mattress, pillows and linens. Would recommend to all my friends!
